Establishing Rules

 
     
  Children are a great thing for a family and they will no doubt become the centre of attention in the house, but it is essential that from an early age they understand that there are a number of rules which must be followed. If this is not established they will become dominant.  
     
  To avoid dominant children its essential that the family life follows certain routines. The rules established for children must be kept simple and the child should know his rules and responsibilities in the family daily life.  
     
  If the child is obstinate the best way to fight it is by ignoring his continuos demands, when he realizes that it isn't working he will stop doing it.  
     
  During adolescence you will find periods of extreme obstination, when this happens the family rules must be revised. Through dialogue a new set of rules and responsabilities must be established. If these rules are broken the teenager must pay the consequences.
